I would love to jump on this! Or at least give to my family members. We ended up flying into Narita the day it ropened and caught a second flight to Osaka. Myself, 2 kids, wife, and mother-in-law had purchased a tour package over my kids spring break. It was to be our family vacation of a lifetime. We didn't know if we should try to cancel or go, but our email contacts in Japan asked to please come.
Thanks to our travel agency "Japan Deluxe Tours" and our wonderful guide, we went and had an opportunity to observe an incredible people and country during one of their most trying periods. And we felt that our presence was appreciated. Please remember that many people work in the travel industry and NEED the tourism to return to keep their jobs. Tourism returning will keep people employed and not needing government handouts. The 10,000 tickets looks to be a promotion to encourage the return tourism which in the long run will help the country and its citizens.
My family and I wish to return to see many of the attractions that were closed due to the disasters that took place. Japan has so much to proud of and to show the rest of world that I hope this promotion takes place.
